Twarit Mukhya: Maratha Kranti Morcha calls out Mumbai bandh today

Updated 25 Jul 2018 09:51 AM

Protesters attacked public buses in Mumbai, and the neighbouring Thane and Navi Mumbai as the
bandh called by Maratha outfits over their demand for reservation began this morning.
Two BEST buses were attacked by agitators in Kanjurmarg and Bhandup suburbs of Mumbai.
In view of the stone-pelting on buses, the Brihanmumbai Electric Supply and Transport (BEST) partially suspended its services in those areas and expects to resume it when the situation improves, an official of the transport body said.
Protesters also hurled stones at a public transport bus in Wagle Estate area of the neighbouring Thane city.
They blocked some areas there, including the key Teen Hath Naka junction, resulting in long queues of vehicles on the road leading to Mumbai.
A bus was also attacked in Ghansoli area of Navi Mumbai following which the city transport authority suspended its services in the area, an official said.
Agitators gathered at various locations in the Mumbai region and the neighbouring Raigad and Palghar districts.
At some places, protesters raised slogans against Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis and Public Works Department Minister Chandrakant Patil for allegedly insulting sentiments of the Maratha community.
The suburban railway services on the western, central, harbour and trans-harbour lines were not affected, officials said.
Around 70 lakh people travel in local trains daily in the Mumbai region.
